Jun 23rd 2009 9:31AM Airlines aren't the only ones trying to make an extra buck at the expense of the travelor. Recently I rented a car in Ireland thru Auto Europe. I paid for it and then got another bill from the rental agency, for more than the contract with Auto Europe. Seems they charged me to fill the car with gas, even though I returned it full. When I read the fine print, that is what it basically said, " Return it empty and no refund or credit for gas brought back." I then looked at the voucher for a car I am to rent in Hawaii next week. Same thing. Not only do they get the gas you didn't use (it's hard to bring one back empty) but they charge you THEIR inflated prices for the gas they put in. Of course it has been drilled into us to bring the car back full. Better watch this in the future. I've rented many times thru Auto Europe and this is the first time I have ever had this to happen. They have not replied as to whether or not this is going to be their standard procedure but like the charge for baggage, the others will see it and jump on the money wagon.
